Great little game.  

From all the NPC hints it feels like there's probably a 2nd ending where you use the big white door to go back to beginning, is there?   

At some point between entering the final area and talking to the bear the bridge thing to the final area opened up again so I'm unable to get back to the other areas. I don't really feel like restarting from scratch straight away if there's not more content for me to find.

No, there isn't a second ending. I don't think you've missed anything. Thanks for playing.


This was really good! Just had a lovely rainy afternoon with it. Also I cracked up at the "Watch out for ghouls." sign, but then I kept running into them anyway and saying to myself "watch out for ghouls!" Beautiful environments, the size and detail of the guardians was stark and wonderous, pleasant music... a good place to get lost for a while :)

You've made me quite happy because this is just the sort of mood I was hoping to evoke.


this has really lovely visuals + spaces. thank you for making this. the music is wonderful as well.

thanks for playing!

Well, here's my full opinion (Saw a Spanish youtuber uploaded a gameplay of the game, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlzQPKlMlsY if you want to check it out.)

The game is fun and enjoyable, it is short and it can last no more than 1 hour. Staying away about the hitboxes such as spiders or the weird movement that the game has, i really liked it!

I could say that some things like having the power of respawning and not resetting the room so you can basically destroy bosses regardless of you dying, like the Big Spider, you can just hold down Z and wait for their death. Also, i think i skipped a Guardian. There are like 2-3 walls with eyes in the game, and one of them leaded me to a water-like place, but i got back to check some other paths and ended up with the bear. Basically i skipped the whole area and maybe a power up.

Some things aren't clear, like, the guy that sees your future with jewels, i used it like 3 times, got strenght twice and judgement. I don't know if it really helped.

The guardians i talked to were the frog, bat, snail, bunny, and bear (I think i talked to another one but to be honest, i forgot) So yeah i think i skipped some of the content.

Anyways, i liked it.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, and the turtle!


Thanks for the feedback! I'm sorry to hear you ran into a bug with the eye doors. I'll have a look and see if I can fix it. 

Okay I've gone through and checked the eye doors and everything seems to be working. I'm not sure what happened, but I did put in some extra checks and I hope that solves it. 

Thanks again for the feedback.


Fun game :D I love that one bit art style.
